All Materials And Guidance
Beginner

In this class, you will learn how to melt and pour silver into a pre-made mould.  You will have the opportunity to practice the technique of sand casting – whereby a mould is made by pressing an object into a cylinder of compacted sand, which is then removed before pouring molten silver into the space created.

As a general template, there will be time to perform a minimum of two casts each in a class. You will cast a ring in the morning (using a wax mould) then another item of your choice (using an object which you can bring yourself – no bigger than 3cm2.) You will also be taught jewellery finishing techniques such as piercing, filing, heat treating and polishing – enabling you to walk away with two finished and wearable pieces of jewellery or polished silver objects.

This class is suitable for complete beginners or those with some jewellery making experience. The class may be especially appropriate for those who would like to recycle sentimental silver or for those who wish to replicate an already existing piece of jewellery or object.

Please Note:
– Making jewellery can be messy so please don’t wear your best clothes!
– For Health and Safety reasons please wear sturdy footwear that covers your feet – i.e. no sandals
– If you need reading glasses please bring them along, as we will be working on tiny things.
